New OSQA server has a ton of fake users

I am working on an OSQA (open source Q&A web server) server and as soon as I routed the DNS from godaddy to my hosted server, I started getting a bunch of fake user accounts.  I have like 30 of them within a span of a few weeks.  The accounts are not posting questions or anything yet, so not sure what these accounts are up to.  They are not visiting members, because all the accounts were created and last seen at the same time (date/hour/minute).  Are these bots?  What should my concerns be?  

I would ask the OSQA forums but support for the free product is almost zero.

you are right, and I thought I had one of those but I didn't.  I bet that is the cause.

Without Captcha, any bot can sign up.  So that appears to be the issue and you can probably close the question.
